The 2013 Season of Prayer for State Missions is observed throughout the month of September in churches across Kentucky. Join us as we pray for missions in Kentucky and give to the Eliza Broadus Offering. This is the 100th anniversary of our state missions offering which was started at the recommendation of Eliza Broadus in 1913. You can learn more about this remarkable lady and her influence in a biography by Dr. Jack Birdwhistell.
Our 2013 theme verse is Luke 8:8: “Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.” A great example of this is the EBO investment in the Victory Baptist Church in Shelbyville. I wrote about this congregation back in May and told about the new portable baptistry they had purchased with help from the state missions offering. I received this message from Marc Webb about Victory’s plans to support EBO.
Be sure to read the “State Missions Special Edition” which is included in this week’s edition of the Western Recorder. Encourage your church to show one of the state missions video clips each Sunday during the month of September as we see how more than ever, we can make a difference through praying, giving, and ministry.
